How on earth did you have all the money you’d ever want and then lose it? Seriously?

I read that statement to mean that he had the comfortable life and then gave it all up to try and fail. He had all the money he needed without having to worry about what he spent on groceries or perhaps to buy that bigger monitor. It’s one of the worst feelings, to me, about giving up the prescribed corporate life with its deferred-life retirement plan. Even if I go back to corporate America, I won’t be able to retire with the requisite 40 years of savings. But I would feel better day-to-day and week-to-week, instead of struggling. Thank you, Jon and everyone, for sharing. I can feel less alone with the fear.
